James Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy” is targeting a March start of filming which means pre-production is in full swing on the project.
Star David Corenswet has been bulking up for the project, getting ready to play Clark Kent/Superman, whilst other casting announcements that were flying thick and fast in November and December have now quietened down.
Last night, Gunn took to Threads to answer some questions about the movie and gave an update on how it’s all going:
“It’s going swimmingly. Sets being built, costumes being finished, actors studying roles, prosthetics and VFX models being made, flights booked. Here we go.”
Asked if we can assume the concept art for the costumes, such as Superman’s outfit, are finished, he responded: “You can’t!”. Asked when he think they’ll be finished, he says: “By the time we shoot.”
That seems to be why the other week he indicated there would not be a costume reveal photo before the film begins production – because the designs haven’t been finalised yet.
Asked if he had about 90% of the cast locked in, he responded: “More” before confirming that casting is not 100% locked yet – meaning we could hear another announcement or two.
Joining Corenswet are Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Maria Gabriela de Faria as Angela Spica / The Engineer, Isabela Merced as Kendra Saunders / Hawkgirl, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Edi Gathegi as Michael Holt / Mr. Terrific, and Anthony Carrigan as Rex Mason / Metamorpho.
“Superman: Legacy” will be released exclusively in theaters on July 11th 2025.
